She has drums all around, but I am fine with that for now. It's not that I plan to race her, thus I should be fine with drums.Does it have drums up front? And if so do you plan a retrofit for some discs?
The example is still a bit above the price we paid, but sadly, Eye-Q is correct. We did not get this car for $800.I really don't think he paid just 800$ for it, that would be ridiculous...
He wrote he haggled the seller down 800$, that's 5200$ instead of 6000$ for example.
Budget and German classic car rules prohibit extensive modifications - the things I could get away with (heads, cam) I can't afford. Thus, we'll probably get an Edelbrock Performer 400 intake manifold and a matching 4 bbl carb and leave it at this.Awesome find guys! Congratulations! Any plans to open up the Cleveland a bit?
We are doing Chicago -> St. Louis -> Memphis (-> detour to Mo-Kan dragway) -> New York City - sorry, won't make it over to you this time!Where are you planning on road tripping to? Coming out this way by chance?
Eh if it knocks out a Smart or two i'm sure it'll be practically unscathed! :lol:NYTimes said:The National Highway Safety Administration announced last week it would not order a recall of 16 million Ford Motor Company cars and trucks for repairs - at least, not yet.
Instead, Ford agreed to warn the owners of an estimated 22.9 million vehicles manufactured between 1970 and 1979 that unless ''important safety precautions'' are taken, their FMX, C3, C4, C6 or Jatco automatic transmissions can accidentally slip, causing ''unexpected and possibly sudden vehicle movement.''
Car owners will receive dashboard stickers instructing them not to leave the car when the engine is running, to always use the parking brake and to make sure the gear shift is properly placed in park.
The recall would have been the largest in automobile industry history, costing Ford, which lost about $1.2 billion last year, more than $100 million, according to industry observers. Distributing warning stickers, they said, would cost between $6 million and $10 million.
But a Transportation Department spokesman said the safety agency's ''initial determination'' in June - that design defects were responsible for some 6,000 accidents resulting in 98 fatalities and 1,710 injuries - remains in effect.
Yup, foot trip high beam.Holy shit! That's awesome dude. Congrats! I can only imagine trying to squeeze that through town wherever you live!
Fun fact:That "Important safety precaution" sticker slapped on the dash btw was due to well...this: http://www.nytimes.com/1981/01/04/weekinreview/ideas-trends-the-ford-solution-warning-stickers-instead-of-recall.html

EDIT: That silver round button on the floor..that's for high beams right?
That makes out to 18.2 feet. So, it's still a solid 2 feet shorter than my F150. Still, I can't wait to see the pictures of it among all of the euro boxes back in Germany.If the internet is right, this thing has 5568mm in lenght.
That is almost 2 meters more than my first car.
That is 1.7 meters longer than my current car.
